June 3, 2020 - Culture of Caring - Claudia Finkelstein

Are you feeling powerless as an ally right now? Here are some actions you can consider:

Please do not ask your friends of color to educate you right now, instead, consult this anti-racist reading list.

Please do not assume your friends/colleagues/students of color have the bandwidth to open this conversation with you.

But, do let them know you stand with them, care for them and love them.

Rather than re-posting outrage on social media, consider taking one or several of these steps. For example, you could open a bank account in a Black Owned Bank or support Black Owned Businesses.

Realize that we who are in positions of power need to use our voices as allies, so if you see something, say something.
